"Can he who was dead, to whom We gave life, and a light whereby he can walk amongst men, be like him who is in the depths of darkness, from which he can never come out?" — Holy Qur'an 6:122

Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim
In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.
'The (real) believer is one who from the Shariat arrives at tariqat, and from the latter to haqqiqat, which is the real inner meaning of Shariat. Shariat may be compared to a candle, tariqat to the path, and haqiqat to the destination. One must strive to walk along the correct path, lit by the candle, and reach the abode of haqqiqat. The foundation of haqqiqat is to recognize the Imam. The purpose of everything is its inner meaning, which forms its (real) substance, its essence and sweetness. Therefore, the ultimate purpose of Shariat introduced by the Prophet was its inner meaning which is haqqiqat, i.e., the recognition of the Imam of the time.
—Imam Noor Mowlana Shah Mustansir bi'l-laah II. Pir Pandiyat-i Jawanmardi text, p. 2
